Default Myst IV

man, i am a HUGE Myst fan! I love the games. I was reading that UbiSoft is well into the making of Myst IV. Have any of you heard anything about it? Do you guys like Myst also? I think it is an AMAZING game in that the eviroment is so emersive and beutifull.

Coments any one?

well, there is rumors they (not ubisoft though) is working on monkey island 5. but i would not count on anything til you can actually see the game box in a shop. not even the "preorder" means anything that they would be close to be done.

oh and by the way, i liked myst too. but the navigation in legacy of time (not exactly an sequal to myst, is it?) is a it - well - strange. hopefully myst IV will be easy to navigate. or was riven myst 2 ???

The first 2 Myst games were fantastic. I didn't care for Exile as much... Myst was always about super super hard puzzles. It took me 3 weeks to beat Myst. 2 weeks to beat Riven... 3 days to beat Exile. :p

I dont think I ever beat Riven. Got rid of it, wont work right on Win2k. Exile. Took me 3 days the first time. The puzzels can be realy realy hard, like the last one, but they dont take to long to do. I think they should have kept the puzzles just like they are, just had more of them. Myst IV is said to be more like Riven, all takes place in one world, with minor trips to others. Unlike Exile that has 5 worlds, all of which play major rolls.

My favorite was riven. I spent 20-30 minutes a day on that game for about a year:p I think that they really crafted this atmosphere with myst, perfected it in Riven, and then some 3rd- party developer comes along and ruins it.



OK, maybe not any third party developer. maybe the same one that made the wonderful Journeyman series... but it felt more like a journeyman game than a myst game.

BTW, for any who have not played journeyman 3 but are into that sort of game, you must get it. It's kind of dated, but still excellent.
